Town Hall Square parking

Coronavirus COVID-19: Town Hall Square parking updates

Due to the COVID-19 walk-in test centre in the car park, you can not use the electric car charging spaces and we've had to reduce the capacity for parking.

We'll continue to monitor the situation closely, carefully and frequently and will update this website if anything changes.


The Town Hall Square Car Park is now closed so we can renovate Rochdale Town Hall. We expect the car park to reopen in 2023.
